In order for someone to get different results in life, they have to first start thinking differently, which will then result in them acting differently.
The way think hold us back and that is why the first thing God deals with when a person truly accept Christ is their mindset:
1. How the think in regards to sin
2. How they should act as a response to sin
Rom 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
You become how you think:
Pro 23:7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.
As you can see from this scripture, a person is described as thinking deceitfully and so acted deceitfully.
Your thoughts determine your attitude and your attitude will determine what you do. We are a sum total of our choices and our eternal destiny rests on us making the right choices. God gives us everything we need to live right, but the final decision on how we live rests with us. God is not going to fight against our choices, but he will judge them.
Jesus chose to sacrifice himself for you and for me and we know his choice put him under immense pressure as we read the account of him praying in the garden of Gethsemane:
Luk 22:44 And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
How he did not let the pressure of his choice stop him from doing what he needed to do because he had vision of the future. He knew the present was going to take effort but the future was him back in his glory as the resurrected Christ!
When it got really tuff, all of his disciples let him, but that still did not shake him from doing what he needed to do, because he had made a choice and he was firm in that choice:
Moses was the same, he had the option to stay in a comfort zone as one of the sons of Pharaoh, but he chose differently: Heb 11:25 Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;
And because of his choice a whole nation of people were saved. During this process he had to learn new skills in order to be effective and so he had another choice to make, whether to listen to the council of his father- in-law or to be puffed up in his pride as the big deliverer who does not need any help:
"14 When Moses' father-in-law saw all that he was doing for the people, he said, What is this that you do for the people? Why do you sit alone, and all the people stand around you from morning till evening?
15 Moses said to his father-in-law, Because the people come to me to inquire of God.
16 When they have a dispute they come to me, and I judge between a man and his neighbor, and I make them know the statutes of God and His laws.
17 Moses' father-in-law said to him, The thing that you are doing is not good.
18 You will surely wear out both yourself and this people with you, for the thing is too heavy for you; you are not able to perform it all by yourself.
19 Listen now to [me]; I will counsel you, and God will be with you. You shall represent the people before God, bringing their cases and causes to Him,
20 Teaching them the decrees and laws, showing them the way they must walk and the work they must do.
21 Moreover, you shall choose able men from all the people--God-fearing men of truth who hate unjust gain--and place them over thousands, hundreds, fifties, and tens, to be their rulers.
22 And let them judge the people at all times; every great matter they shall bring to you, but every small matter they shall judge. So it will be easier for you, and they will bear the burden with you.
23 If you will do this, and God so commands you, you will be able to endure [the strain], and all these people also will go to their [tents] in peace.
24 So Moses listened to and heeded the voice of his father-in-law and did all that he had said.
Moses choice allowed him to be more productive in governing Israel at the same time as leveraging him time.
The reason why people are in their current situations is solely down to choices.
So lets ask God to guide us so we make the right ones.
Everyday people choose the learn new skills to grow their business and people choose not to learn new skills. Their results reflect their choices.
We have a system designed to develop a person’s business and everyday people choose to plug into the system and grow their business while others choose not the plug in and act all surprised when their business is not growing.
Any decision we make we really should count the costs before making it and if we are not prepare to go through the learning curve it takes to be successful, then we should really reconsider our choice, because the only people we are fooling is ourselves when we do that.
Within Reliv, if you truly do not have a passion for helping others, then you should really reconsider your decision to grow a Reliv business because it just will not happen.
Different people’s business grow at different rate because of their, skill level, personality, center of influence or their willingness to learn. So how serious were you when you made that decision to build your Reliv business, did you count the cost or were you looking for a quick fix?
Moses was in the backside of a desert before he learned what he needed to learn in order to shepherd God’s people.
How long will it take you to learn the things you need to, in order to be successful but also to handle success?
